Explain your username

Do you mind explaining 'Persephone', please? I've always been interested in what that meant :happy:
I'd be interested if this was something more meaningful then just a cool name, and a reference to greek mythology..

I first heard it in The Matrix and just liked the sound of it. Persephone is "Queen of the Underworld" in mythology, but I didn't really think about that when choosing.

scokem

Mine's part of my first and last names:

Scott Kempson

My brother came up with the idea of chopping parts of my name together when I needed an ID for xbox Live and so scokem was born :p I've stuck with it ever since and changed all my online IDs to be it too. My previous ID was Lil' Kempo because I'm the youngest of three brothers and to our friends when we were growing up, we were each known as Kempo. I think scokem is way better than that though and I was getting bored of it seeming like I was either little or young depending on how people interpreted the Lil' part!

Growled

I woke up one morning fussing about things a bit (partly from hangover, partly from not being a morning person) and my girlfriend at the time (who called me her big old teddy bear) said, "you're being a bit growled this morning." I found it so amusing I started using it for my user name.

My real name is Rick.

BlackSteyrAug

Old username FleazZz. The name Flea was being used by the famous bassist from RHCP, so I added a Z, so I added 2 more Z's when I lost my old email. My new username BlackSteyrAug is a song by band Today is the Day.

Zoom7000

Hmmm, 12 years ago when I started to browse the net, it was just something I thought of at random, so I went about being "Zoom" until it wasn't available at another forum I tried to sign up on and then "7000" was the first number I liked that came up at the time. It's been "Zoom7000" since.

I have seen a few other Zoom7000's around the net though! :argue:

Maybe I should copyright it! Zoom7000?;))

Interestingly enough, "The Ankle Breaker" came about after me repeatedly using an Ankle Lock/Bar/Hook as my move of choice when doing MMA training back in the day!

mzta cody

Well, at the time I joined, I couldn't for the life of me think of a catchy username. I thought of this Windows-geared site where this guy posted some off-the-wall comments to articles, that were both funny to me as well as being almost incomprehensible. I think the guy's username was MonsterKody or MonstaKody or something. He always mentioned McDonalds or hamburgers inexplicably in his posts. Cracked me up. So I came up with a variation of that.

xpablo

Pablo is my nickname, the X as in XPablo, when XP was being released, since I was one of the first guys at work to upgrade my Win2k OS to XP.

People @ work, started calling me XPablo, today i'm still known as Pablo, as I work for a different company now.

Where i'm simply known by my real name Paul or Pablo.

jafoman

JAFO was the "handle" I used on BBSes back in the day. I also ran one called "Blue Thunder BBS". It's a character from the movie / TV show. It was taken here so I added "man" to the end (no good reason).

Avatar shows what "Blue Thunder" is... And yeah, it was real.
